The Truth Pays

Representative Joe Wilson was disciplined by the House today because he wouldn't apologize again. But this little dust-up with the President has illuminated a valuable lesson.

The story:
1. The President said something that was not true.
2. Representative Wilson said something that was true, albeit rudely.
3. The Health Care Bill has now been changed to include provisions Wilson had, twice previously, been unsuccessful in attaching.
4. Wilson's reelection campaign fund has now reached levels unprecedented in his State of South Carolina.

The Moral to the Story: Telling the Truth Pays.

Will it start a Washington trend?

We can only hope.
